Subject: Drawing Children
This is great for proportions for children. Too many artists draw children as little adults. This book gives great proportional comparisons. The line drawings used to show action are interesting in that they aren't like many anatomy books that only give you the full frontal and side view arms at sides drawings.

Subject: Content
If you're a fan of William Rimmer (English-born artist who wrote/illustrated Art Anatomy) you'll love this book as well. It's written by his daughter but it looks like a lot of the illustrations are either done by William or done in his style.

Don't be put off by the title. Any artist could benefit from this book. The emphasis is on constructing children. It begins with the stick figure then builds up to the solid form. The section on constructing a child's head is especially nice.

If this were on the bookstore shelves it would be selling.
